FRA vs POR Dream11 Prediction: Two heavyweights meet in this mouth-watering UEFA Nations League clash as world champions France host European champions Portugal. The hosts are in great form having avoided defeat in their last ten, winning nine of those matches. They have maximum points from their two matches in this competition so far and put seven past Ukraine in their midweek friendly. Portugal also have maximum points but France’s superior ability in front of goal could see them fall to defeat in this one, although it is a game where both teams can score. France and Portugal have faced each other a total of 25 times on the international stage. The French have historically been the dominant side in this fixture, winning 18 games against their opponents. Portugal have managed six victories and will want to make a statement with a victory this weekend.

France Team News
France have won both their opening fixtures against Croatia and Sweden and are behind Portugal only on goal difference. The reigning World Champions thrashed Ukraine by a 7-1 margin earlier this week and will be filled to the brim with confidence going into this game.

France have no major injury concerns going into this game and Didier Deschamps is likely to field his best line-up.

Fernando Santos has a fully-fit squad ahead of this fixture and will rely on his talismanic forwards to step up to the plate against France.

This has all of the makings of an excellent game between two top international teams. Both defences are sure to come under pressure during stages of the contest, but we are finding it very hard to separate the two sides. Neither manager would be too disappointed with a draw, and we are expecting a few goals here. At the end, we predict a 1-1 draw in today match prediction.
